Mariah and Rebecca both go for Sluter on Facebook.

Am I crazy to think Sluter's one of the best sculptors thus far? And Modersohn-Becker? Blech.

Maybe I'm susceptible this morning, but Sluter is seeming surprisingly moving to me.

Sluter is seeming surprisingly moving to me, too.

And Sluter puts an end to Modersohn-Becker's odd 1-2-2 journey through the brackets with a decisive 10-2 win. He'll take on Rubens this Tuesday!
